After successfully getting the player who owned the number eight back at Liverpool, Fritz said that his party was determined to turn back the player’s performance at the best level, especially when at Anfield he only got a few minutes to play because he was struggling with injuries.
“We obviously know Naby from his previous time in the Bundesliga and have overseen his career in the Premier League. He picked up an injury at the start of this season and that meant he wasn’t playing as often as he would like. We now want to return him to his best form, “added Fritz.
Bremen coach Ole Werner is also very pleased with the signing of the Guinean national team captain.
Werner revealed that Keita is a talented player who can score goals and assist in his position as a midfielder.
“Naby is a technically gifted and hard-working midfielder, which will give us more flexibility. He is dangerous in front of goal and can also provide assists,” said Werner.
